MAXCloud ERP Bill of Materials (BOMs) Demos
MAXCloud ERP gives you an efficient and flexible
means of managing bills of material to ensure you get the most accurate
costing and materials requirements information. Price calculations, using cost price, can be performed for
each level of the BOM, giving you accurate and detailed pricing
information which is updated throughout the solution. You can create
multiple BOM versions to provide maximum flexibility, and you can use
the version date of each BOM to control the validity of different versions.
Previous BOM versions can be accessed and reused at any time.

Creating Simple BOMs:
Create a BOM without a Version:
As a new assistant to the product designer, you are asked to create a
simple BOM for a new product. Create the BOM, add the items defined in
the scenario, and approve the BOM. Remember you do not have to add
versions to this BOM.
Create a BOM in the BOM Designer:
As a new assistant to the product designer, you have received a new
specification for the enclosure side. An item is not set up for this
specification. Therefore, you only need to create a simple BOM with
Creating BOMs with Versions:
Creating a BOM with a Version from the Released Products List Page: The sales department has identified a need for Enclosure sides, with the color cherry instead of the stain ash. As the product designer, you are asked to create a BOM item
and then approve the BOM.
Creating a BOM with a Version in the BOM Designer: The sales team
has noticed a sales trend for cherry enclosure sides, and the company
management has decided to start production of them. As the Assistant to
the Product Designer, it is your responsibility to create the BOM item
and then use the BOM designer to add the necessart components.
BOM and Item Configurations:
Create and Use Configuration Groups: As the assistant to the product designer, you have been asked to set up a configurable BOM for a new
product. A new configuration group must be created because this product will only use one of two
Create Configuration Routes:
You have already set up a new configuration group in the task above.
However, a BOM was set up before the routes were determined. As the assistant to the product designer, you are responsible for creating configuration routes on configurable BOMs.
Create Configuration Rules:
As the product designer, you are responsible for adding configuration rules to configurable BOMs.
In the two demos above, you have already created a configuration group and routes.
Now, add the Configuration Rules to the BOM.
Add Item Configurations: As the assistant to the product designer, you have set up a new BOM
with configuration groups, routes, and rules. The BOM has been approved
for production. Therefore, a new BOM item must be created, assigned to
the BOM, and then approved and activated.
Working with BOM Calculations:
Create a Cost Group with Profit Settings: As the production manager, you have set up a new cost group for profit margin. Create this group with the Profit Settings.
Create a Calculation Group: As the warehouse manager, you have identified a need for a calculation group that calculates cost by purchase price and sales by sales price.
The calculation group is called PPSP, Purchase price and Sales price, and requires warnings to appear when no active BOMs are available or when consumption is zero.
Running BOM Calculations and Comparing Results:
The Operations Manager asks you, the new Production Planner, to run two BOM calculations for
an enclosure, first, for a quantity of one and then for a quantity of ten.
This task is intended to show how it is better to produce in larger
quantities when scrap is something to consider with calculation based on
costing version Standard Cost Costing Version.
Sales Orders and BOMs:
Use Configurable BOMs in a Sales Order:
One of the purchasing agents for your company receives an order from a
client for two different products. As the order processor, create a
Sales Order for the customer.
BOM Calculations from a Sales Order:
The same purchasing agent calls to place another order for a new item. However, she tells you that she wants to buy an even number of enclosure sides, and there is a budget of
$12,000 USD, net of sales tax and miscellaneous charges.
Run calculations for orders of 20 pieces and 24 pieces and let the
client know the difference.
Scrap and Measurement:
Add BOM Scrap and Run Calculations: As the process designer, you run
a calculation for two pieces of one of your tiems. You have been informed that scrap is produced during the process run and you must add scrap adjustments to the item. In a BOM, adjust the scrap
to include the additional components. As soon as the component items are updated for scrap, run a calculation for the quantity of two and compare results.
Set Up and Calculate BOM Measurement: The design department has determined that the fiberboard required in the production of one enclosure is a height dimension of 3.2 and a width dimension of 1.32.
Because the fiberboard has standard measurements of 8 for height and 4 for width for each square foot, the BOM must be changed to use this calculation factor, and therefore, minimize excessive cuts.
Report a BOM as Finished:
Report a BOM as Finished:
As the warehouse manager, you are responsible to report BOM item as finished. Verify that there is enough on-hand inventory and then create the BOM journal without specifying automatic posting. In the BOM journal, review the component lines and then validate the journal before posting.
Reports and Other BOM Functionality:
BOM: The enclosures have been slightly restructured and now require
9 inch hardwood veneer. As the warehouse manager, you receive this
notice and are instructed to remove the 6 inch hardwood veneer item from
all related BOMs and replace it with 9 inch hardwood veneer.
Run a Manual BOM Check: As the assistant to the product designer, you accidentally open the wrong BOM and add the BOM item to itself. After running the BOM check on this BOM, you are informed of the circularity error. You remove the component item from the BOM and run the function again to verify that the error has been corrected appropriately.
Set Up and Run an Automatic BOM Check: As the product designer, you have been informed that some of the BOMs in production have circularity errors. You decide to set the automatic BOM check on the BOM level so that the check is run when users exit the BOM after creating it.
After setting up the automatic BOM check, test the BOM creation process to verify that the message is received and that you cannot leave the form until the changes are made.
